How to become a nanny in NYC

According to the US Nanny Association, there are “no regulations or requirements to be a nanny” in the US. You can simply become a nanny by stating you are a nanny. However, here are some requirements that might help you secure a job.

The US Nanny Association has training and certification courses that can help you become a qualified nanny. Babysitters and nannies with at least 20 hours of training and one year of work experience can become a certificated nanny. ​It is also beneficial for nannies to have had CPR and first aid training, which you can gain through the American Red Cross. It is also important you have had a background check you can give to your employer.

Previous childcare experience is reported to be one of the most important factors in securing a job as a nanny. Popular websites to land nannying jobs in the US include and Sittercity. Could this be the start of your Uptown Girls existence?
